Dec. 16 -- LUG 2011 will be held in Orlando, Florida, from Tuesday, April 12, 2011, through April 14, 2011 at the Marriott World Center Golf and Spa resort. This two-and-a-half-day event is the primary venue for discussion and seminars on open source parallel file system technologies with a unique focus on the Lustre parallel file system.
"LUG is the preeminent venue for users of the Lustre parallel file system, drawing individuals both internationally and across a variety of disciplines," said Oak Ridge National Laboratory's (ORNL's) Technology Integration Group Leader Galen Shipman.
LUG 2011 is user-led with an organizing committee made up of representatives from Commissariat à l''énergie atomique (CEA), Indiana University – Pervasive Technology Institute (IU), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), ORNL, Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), and Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). The conference is generously supported by the following corporate sponsors: Bull, DataDirect Networks, Dell, HP, LSI, Oracle, SGI, and Whamcloud.
"LUG 2011 is the first LUG that is completely community driven. It opens a promising new area in the Lustre community," said Jacques-Charles Lafoucrière, Chef de Service at CEA.
Registration Is Now Open
As of December 15, members of the Lustre community can now register for LUG 2011 via the conference website at http://www.olcf.ornl.gov/event/lug-2011/. Early bird registration (through March 15) is $400 per person, while standard registration (after March 15) is $550 per person for the entire two-and-a-half-day event.
Call For Participation
The LUG program committee would like to invite members of the Lustre community to submit presentation abstracts for inclusion in this year's meeting. It is not necessary to submit a technical paper, just an abstract of the proposed talk no more than a page in length.
"The LUG offers participants opportunities to share knowledge, ideas, and achievements with a diverse audience. We anticipate an interesting program and would encourage you to be a part of it," said Stephen Simms, Data Capacitor project lead at Indiana University.
Talks should be approximately half an hour in length and reflect the work that you or your site are doing with Lustre. The deadline to submit presentation abstracts is February 14, 2011. For questions or to submit a presentation abstract contact the program committee chair, Stephen Simms, at email@example.com.

The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
